WHY GET IMMUNIZED?
Many serious diseases can be avoided through proper vaccination. Updating your immunizations is a crucial step you should take to protect your health before you leave on a trip overseas. Because most vaccines will protect you up to almost 100%, you won’t have to worry when you leave home. And it will vastly increase your chances of being in good health when you return.

THE RIGHT IMMUNIZATION FOR THE RIGHT TRIP, AT THE RIGHT TIME

Whether you’re leaving in 2 months, 6 months or next year, it’s never too soon to get immunized. For most travel destinations you’ll need several vaccines. Because many of these require more than one shot and your immunity only begins to develop 10 to 14 days after vaccination, it’s very important to put your travel immunization plan at the top of your to-do list.

To be well protected, it is preferable that you visit us 6 to 8 weeks before your departure. However, if you don’t have sufficient time, it’s better to opt for a last-minute consultation than leave home without any protection at all.
